Rocket Frog Brewing Company is an independent craft brewery based in Sterling, Virginia, serving the greater Northern Virginia and Washington, DC community. Our passion for quality craft beer runs deep and we demonstrate this with our four to five flagships, seasonal offerings, and a variety of specialty beers throughout the year.
Rocket Frog will boast an 800 sq. ft. tasting room that will look directly into the brew house. We will have 12 taps featuring 4-5 flag ship beers, and a variety of seasonal beers, one off beers, and barrel aged beers. Purchase beer by the taster, flight, or full pour. You are welcome to bring in your own food, but we plan to have food trucks on site up to 4 days a week. Our tap room will feature work from local artists on a rotating basis with. Interested in a private or semi-private event, please contact us.
We believe beer is for everyone and that we should make beer for all tastes. Our father was born in Belgium, and our oldest brother has been living in San Diego since 1999. We are heavily influenced by both of these great beer cultures, and you can expect to see our examples of both of these in our tasting room. We got our affinity for craft beer by visiting Dogfish Head since its beginning in 1995; we actually just purchased a section of their original bar that will live on in our tasting room.
What is a Rocket Frog
On September 6, 2013, an innocent frog was caught by the ignition of a Minotaur V rocket, which launched the LADEE spacecraft from Wallops Island Spaceport in coastal Virginia. The spacecraft was designed in Loudoun County, 2.5 miles from Rocket Frog Brewing Company headquarters. An image taken by NASA caught our brave hero flying through the air as the rocket launched, forever immortalized in what may be his final moments (or not). This amazing picture resonated with the owners, as both an amazing event and a great photo. What better way to honor our amphibian friend than create a world-class brewery and name it after this frog. We feel this is a fun name and we want this to resonate within our brand.
